Move over Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness has now become my most anticipated film of the year. It’s a tight race that might change from week to week, but this latest trailer has me excited for this film in a way I haven’t about a film in a while. Who would’ve thought that a big Star Wars fan, who grew up hating Star Trek, would be so excited about their film series? Well, it’s surprised the hell out of me. Watch the trailer below and see if you echo my sentiments. Also, sidenote, did Benedict Cumberbatch go to the Alan Rickman School of Villainy?
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
